HP Envy Photo 6230


Hyvä valokuvatulostin mustepatruunoiden vaihtopalvelulla.

Installation a nightmare.


This worked fine for a while, under Windows 10, but after Windows updated itself the printer wouldn't work. I got the message 'driver not available'. So I uninstalled all the HP software, downloaded again, re-installed, and got the same result. Repeat,...

Good Quality Printer


The printer is straight forward to set up, although printing does require 2 apps to be installed on your android phone. The printer guides you through the installation process and once complete, it's easy to print directly from your phone via the app...
